Off to Hen Mountain for our final family-friendly hike of this season! We will take a break from organised hikes over the winter months to concentrate on exams and final year modules and resume in the spring.

It has been a lot of fun and we look forward to seeing you all again in 2019!

This summer we are practicing the art of slow...long, gentle days outdoors together learning to appreciate the small, the simple, the luxury of time and space to be together, friendships, art, music, wonder, books, nature and whatever else days with no agenda bring 📚🌿🦋 #slow#slowliving
Found a window marker in a drawer yesterday and decided to write inspiring quotes around the house for the kiddos to read over the summer...we can help create a positive inner monologue...☀️📚💡 #books#goodreads
We had an absolute blast during this year's #30dayswild challenge organised by @thewildlifetrusts ...the superb weather here in N.I. has definitely helped us get out and about every day and we have made some cracking nature-filled wild memories...now we just need to #staywild 🌿☀️🐦🦋
Most of our wild time has been spent in the garden this week because it's just been too HOT to go anywhere! ☀️ This boy has loved learning about Awesome Apes in the latest issue of @natgeokidsuk during the final week of #30dayswild 🌿 @thewildlifetrusts #getoutdoors
